Front desk lady could not find our reservation even though I had a reservation number that I gave them. Then she made us feel like we would not get a table, and the restaurant was empty. After some time she gave us a table, it was very cold in the corner they put us in. My husband loved his meal. He had the seared tuna. I ordered the Caesar salad which for a fine dining restaurant was underwhelming for 10.00, I also ordered the 6oz filet which was not good because of so much fat and tendon in the piece they gave me. The potatoes and Brussel sprouts were good. Will not go back.

It was our first experience at Christner's Restaurant. I had looked for fine-dining in Orlando before and had never come across Christner's but on this occasion I did. I noticed in the Menu online that they offered Beef Wellington which is something I had always wanted to try but had never found a place that served it. So I made the Reservation and myself and my Girlfriend were both very happy with everything about our time at the Restaurant. The food and my Margarita were all GREAT!!! Daren Theige

It was our first time there and we loved it! First time having beef wellington too and it was delicious. We also ended up having leftovers and enough to have dinner the next night at home and it reheated very well, too.

This was mine and my husband's 1st time dining here and it did NOT disappoint! Everything was absolutely amazing! Our waiter (Dave) was beyond helpful with recommendations and his services were top notch! The only complaint I have is when I called the restaurant and asked for a reservation around 5pm, the woman told me there were none until after 9:30pm. Just for the sake of trying, I decided to look online through Open Table and there was a few for 5:45pm. Good thing I decided to double check!

Another WIN WIN! Amazing South African Lobster tail and melt in your mouth filet. Red Velvet to go was a great treat a little later.
Manny and Warren always a favorite and their assistant, Charles was super sweet! A Valentines rose to top it off.

The food was amazing! Started with a generous and delicious Cesar salad. My son tried dry aged beef for the first time and he loved it. The filet mignon was very tasty as well. In a world of overpriced mediocre steaks, Christner’s really delivers on delicious food! The service was welcoming, attentive, and warm. We enjoyed the evening very much!

I had lobster and my dinner companion had the rib eye. Food was absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared from start to finish including desert- an incredibly moist red velvet cake. Cold water lobster here (Australian) is only rivaled in the greater Orlando area by the Palm (Nova Scotian.)

My only complaint is the seating arrangements. We were seated on a cushioned bench in between two other tables in very close proximity. One table next to us accommodated a gentleman who proceeded to quite loudly discuss politics throughout the dinner. He did. Not. Shut. Up. He blasted his opinions throughout the entire meal and was too loud and too close to ignore, especially since I did not share his loudly proclaimed views. At the end he picked up his steak bone and gnawed on it. It was disgusting behavior for fine dining. For such a pricey establishment I would expect seating with a tad more privacy.
